Irish You a Merry Christmas is an annual

charitable initiative with the purpose of bringing festive cheer to children in need in the San Diego community. The event is a partnership between Irish Outreach San Diego and the four Irish sporting organizations in San Diego;

  • Na Fianna Ladies Gaelic Football Club

  • St. Peters Men's Hurling Club

San Diego has been a welcoming place and one of great opportunity for Irish immigrants for many years. Our event allows the Irish community to return this hospitality and to show their gratitude to America's Finest City by spreading some festive cheer and treating San Diego’s disadvantaged members in the community to the magic of an Irish Christmas. We’d love for you to join us in helping to make this a very special Christmas for a many families in need, many of whom are living in the city's shelters.





Our Goal

To create a wonderful Irish Christmas for families at schools in the San Diego area. Christmas dinner will be served and our Irish Santa will be on hand deliver to gifts to the children while an array of performers will entertain the crowd with Irish music, dance, sporting demonstrations, and crafts.
